The Joy of Serving a Holy God

Romans 12:1-5  Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faithFor just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. HolinessIt may be a new year, but our Father and Lord Jesus Christ remain the same!  What a joy that He never changes.  Romans 12 is a special portion of Scripture to me.  May you be blessed by the Word!   Streim

make us into who YOU want us to be Lord

Humility

James 1: 5-6 “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.”

It is my prayer that we; as forgiven, born again into a new life by the blood of Jesus Christ will surrender, submit and relinquish the rights of  “self” to the Holy Almighty Holy God of heaven.  ♥ Streim  ** (edit) I must add that I do not, in any way, stand by Mr. Packer’s theology.   This quote is quite meaningful.  We must understand that our God is completely holy and sovereign, and only by surrendering to Him can we ever find true Godly wisdom.  I hope no one judges this blog based on a quote in a post.  Blessings to all who seek the Lord first in their lives.

Getting Older

The older I get

The more I learn

The less I know!

But this one thing I KNOW… I know the One who holds the future and holds my hand! 

He Holds Me

Getting older has it’s share of afflictions… but A.W. Pink says it best:

Afflictions are light when compared with what we really deserve. They are light when compared with the sufferings of the Lord Jesus. But perhaps their real lightness is best seen by comparing them with the weight of glory which is awaiting us. —Arthur W. Pink

Be blessed on this day that the Lord has made!  ♥ Streim
